What You'll Find Here

I post daily (photos of my journal pages, things that inspire me and personal bits and pieces) to inspire and encourage others. I have always believed that if I can do it, so can you.

You'll find resources (my favorite supplies, books, slideshows of my art journal pages, favorite bloggers, etc...) listed along the right hand side of my blog.

I've been teaching both in person and online workshops for almost twenty years now. You can find out more about my classes by scrolling down along the right hand side of my blog. I strive to make classes accessible to everyone (both beginner to advanced).

I love teaching and truly believe that deep down inside everyone is an artist, capable of creating something. There is power and knowledge in the act of creating something with your own hands, made from your own heart and head.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at EGorey99@sbcglobal.net

Thanks for stopping by!

Bringing Home the Goods

On my way to Modesto on Friday, I decided to make a (very big) detour and hit my favorite small stores on 4th Street in Berkeley. I found lots of goodies at Scrapbook Territory, Castle in the Air, Nest, and Books Inc.

The only things in the above photo that I can't recommend are the October Afternoon rolling stamps (dates and sayings.) They are the most poorly designed rolling stamps I have ever used. They weren't cheap either. They don't roll well *at all* so just any fyi if you are a sucker for stamps like these (as I usually am.)

After several weeks of go, go, go, I am taking today off to recharge a bit. I am a wee bit behind in emails and I apologize for it. I will be back to work tomorrow morning! Off to play and explore in my journals and books.

Oh those rolling stamps SUCK and are unnecessarily pricey. They are poor image quality and the rubber eventually breaks. The only good rolling stamps I've got are the more office type ones for the date and whatnot. Makes me mad too because those rolling stamps have so much potential!

Take a well earned rest my treasure.

Feet up, a bit of pampering, and just spend the day relaxing.

Emails can wait a few days.

I LOVE the stamp on the left that looks like wave half circles. Can you tell me who that is made by?
